5. I agree with this that indemnification is a major issue with the teleco's
but I don't think it's the totality of it. I personally think that they want the immunity because it will allow them to maintain their status. Imagine the outcry for stricter regulations and smaller telecom companies that would naturally come out of any suits where the conglomerate telecom companies were found to be guilty of illegal domestic spying.

They may be confident that they are protected financially, but are they more worried about possibly losing their deregulated status?
